Abstract Measurements of the activities of AgNO/sub 3/ were made in a fused salt concentration cell at 370 and 436 deg in dilute solutions of Ag/sup +/ and Cl/ sup -/ ions. The activities of AgNO/sub 3/ obeyed the Nernst law at the low concentrations of AgNO/sub 3/ measured when no Cl/sup -/ ions were present. The dissolution of KCl in a AgNO/sub 3/--KNO/sub 3/ mixture lowered the activity of AgNO/sub 3/. The lowering was larger the larger the amount of KCl added and for a given concentration of KCl was also larger the smaller the initial concentration of AgNO/sub 3/. This shows that the Nernst law is not obeyed for AgNO/sub 3/ in the presence of Cl/sup -/ ion. (auth)
